He now hunts fish...
 
Mikey is a weird dog, there's no denying that. He's part beagle and he's always had a prey drive. His ultimate enemy is the bunny in my backyard. He freaks out at chipmunks. He caught a bird once, but the weird thing is, he didn't kill it. He didn't even shake it. He just didn't know what to do with it. My dad saw him play-bowing at something and went outside and he had the bird in his mouth at that point. When my dad told him to drop it, he obeyed. He play-bows at EVERYTHING. The first time he saw a wave he playbowed at it. I think he wants to play with the bunny, he runs after it with his tail wagging. While it's adorable...it's strange.

I think I have found his new enemy..or friendemy. I take him regularly to the park to hike and splash around in the water. He hadn't seen a fish yet. Well, a few weeks ago he did. I couldn't tell what kind it was but he went after it. I guess there was a bunch of them, but he kept chasing them, and putting his snout in the water trying to get them. At one point he was pawing at the water, CRYING. :wtf: He drew a crowd, even a park ranger came over 'cause he saw the crowd. He joked that Mikey needed a license to fish in NJ.

I really have a weird dog, and here is fisherpug -

Before he discovered new prey.

I hate myself for not recording it, but I'm sure I'll have more chances this summer. I *MAY* be taking him canoeing....that'd be an adventure.

Whatever else you do, make sure that Mikey has a PFD on him. Dogs tend to want to jump out of canoes (even well trained experienced canoeing dogs). All the doggie PFDs come with a handle on the top so you can lift them back into the canoe.

And those are great pics of Mikey fishing!

Awsome pics. :thumb: Maybe you should take up fishing so Mikey has a partner. :cool:

He is really adorable and quite a character. I bet you wonder what he's going to do next.

Great pictures! You have got to get a video of him fishing. Mikey is such a cutie!

fun story. I think all dogs are weird in some way or another, some more than others, but this is part of their personalities that we love so much. your dog sounds hilarious and like he'd make a great fishing partner :)
